Find And Fund Urgent Need: Abortion Access

Dear JustFund Community,

Today is a devastating day for our country as the Supreme Court reverses nearly 50 years of precedent overturning Roe v. Wade, ending the federal constitutional right to abortion. Half of the states in our country are also expected to ban abortion. Today’s decision is a gender, racial, and economic injustice that will disproportionately impact communities of color. 

JustFund knows that our community will rise to meet this moment and move critical dollars to organizations working across the nation.

To all individual donors and philanthropic advisors: JustFund will match the first $50,000 in individual donor contributions committed TODAY through our matching fund. Log in now and mark your funding intentions.

There are 33 organizations working on the frontlines of this issue and they need your financial support right now. From the Abortion Care Network to Unite for Reproductive and Justice Equity to Ultraviolet, sign in to your JustFund account now and search for “Urgent Need – Abortion Rights” or follow the links above.

I know you are heartbroken, as we are. Let’s channel our frustration and fear into action. We have to work together at this critical moment to support the organizations protecting the most vulnerable people in our country, who will bear the greatest burden. The power of our community is that we can make a real difference – together.

Warmly,

Iara Peng, Founder & CEO
